Video game publisher Activision released Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 last year and made over a BILLION dollars in sales. Now Activision has decided it wants to make the series more accessible. WHAT? in filipino, ANO DAW?
Thomas Tippl, Activision’s chief operating officer and chief financial officer, explained which studios work on the hugely successful Call of Duty franchise: “Today, we have three studios working on Call of Duty. We have Infinity Ward, which made Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Then we have Treyarch, which will be releasing a Call of Duty game in the fall of 2010. Treyarch also developed Call of Duty: World at War and Call of Duty 3. And, most recently, we’ve added Sledgehammer in the Bay Area. We haven’t yet announced the content of their game, but it’s going to be an innovative take that will further broaden the audience for Call of Duty.”
A game selling a billion dollars isnt mass market enough? If only the original team at Infinity Ward started developing Modern Warfare 3 then we wouldn’t get this nonsense from Activision.
Call of Duty fans, be very very scared about the future of your favorite military themed FPS series. Call of Duty: Military Base ala Farmville or Call of Duty: Build your own Soldier on Facebook anyone?
